I want softwares like Deja Dup, and a pdf reader with highlighting features.

Document viewer that comes pre-installed with Fedora23 supports highlighting. Open a pdf in document viewer, click on "Annotate the document" button on the top panel and then click on the button that says "Add highlight annotation".

Deja Dup is already in the default repositories: sudo dnf install -y deja-dup

If you want additional repositories:

The above are the basics and it's not hard to search!

I use copy paste method for my backups. I don't wanna download applications from the web, I want it inside my repositories. Thanks, I found Yum installer in Package.

  • Copy, paste works pretty good to backup /home if you include the hidden files and folders (.files and .folders). You can exclude stuff like .cache and .thumbnails as well as .local/share/Trash. With the time, I am sure you will start building your own rsync or tar to backup /home.

  • What repository a package is coming from very much depends on the package. deja-dup is in the official fedora repository (run dnf info deja-dup).

  • yum has been retired (unless you are using a non-supported Fedora release like 21 or older). It has been replaced by dnf.
